My OITNB Season 3 Episode 2 Thoughts blog thanks to GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERC

I love GoDaddy. It is a great service that helps you blog for cheap. Because of them, I can blog about whatever I like. What I like to blog about is television, in particular, OITNB.

However, you can blog about whatever you like. And why not? Using GoDaddy coupon CJCSIGLERC will get you a domain for just $0.99. That's so cheap! That way, you can try your hand at blogging without the risk of paying too much. Give it go -- I love it. So will you!

Now for OITNB Season 3 Episode 2.

The episode is titled "Bed Bugs and Beyond". It was directed by Constantine Makris and written by Jim Danger Gray. I know. The guy who wrote it sounds like a tool for having his middle name Danger. Jeez-Louise. If he was on Tinder or Cupid with that name, I'd be like no way. I know enough about you to never, ever date you.

This episode focuses on the prison getting bed bugs. There is some thought by the staff that they may have brought them in when they brought a sofa off the street for their office. I'm presuming so they could have sex in it.

The girls all have to strip down from their normal uniforms to wash all the clothes, bedding and others. However, since the prison is sorely underfunded, there are not enough paper gowns to go around Some of the inmates, Alex included, have to wear makeshift clothing out of garbage bags. Some choose to walk around in their prison issued underwear.

Right there, is why I love this show. The cameras do not shy away from what normal women's bodies look like. There is no special lighting, there is no crafty angle to shoot the girls. This is what they look like. I appreciated it. It's a small thing, but this is actually a big step. Even Piper, who is portrayed by Laura Prepon, is shown as a normal woman. She is drop-dead gorgeous. There is no denying that. However, like all women, she has flaws. She is not perfect. That is good to see.

So mostly, everyone is dealing with the bed bug situation and we find out that the prison is actually going to be shut down. I'm not sure if it is due to the scandal, or simply funding, but Caputo is the last one to know. He finds out as they are burning some mattresses that his request for new ones, despite finding a way to fund it, is being denied. It's because the prison is closing.

All the girls will be relocated.

The show this week also focuses on Bennett and Daya. She is closer to having the baby and her Mother finds out that Pornstache's mother wants to visit Daya. Instead, Momma Daya, otherwise known as Aleida, meets with Pornstache's mother instead. They discuss P.M. adopting the baby. This seems like a good idea to all around except Bennett. He wants to marry Daya and keep the baby.

This changes when he visits Aleida's house and her boyfriend. He then flashes back to his military days where it seems he was of questionable character. Now we are left wondering whether or not Bennett will actually go through keeping the baby.

My thoughts on this week's show was a little meh. Outside of my approval of the way they showed the woman, as for story, I wasn't super happy. I didn't even mention the Piper and Alex storyline because it seems tired. I do still enjoy watching Poussey and Taystee. The rest of them, meh.

I'll keep watching though, because I have a thing about starting something and not finishing it. The show runner is Jenji Kohan and I was extremely disappointed in how Weeds progressed. I feel like the same thing is starting to happen with OITNB as well.

Hopefully more Red next episode.

Talk to you all soon!
